Call of Duty Black Ops: Are Bad Graphics a Game-Breaker?

As huge fans of the franchise, we certainly don’t want to keep casting Call of Duty Black Ops in a bad light, but sometimes you just cant keep ignoring the complaints that keep flooding in.

We have reported on various reviews for the game so far, as well as some of your own user reviews which we asked you for. While it is clear that Treyarch has added a ton of content and replayability to the game which is always a huge plus for any big game release, it seems as if the graphics within Black Ops are a huge let down.

We’ve heard reports that the graphics are a major step back, even ‘cartoony’ as one of our users calls it, probably refering to the Nuketown map, which we agree – did seem a bit strange compared to the other maps on the disc.

Are the graphics that bad though, so much that you would consider not buying, or even returning the game? We’ve heard the term ‘game-breaker’ overused in recent times, but do you think the Black Ops graphics apply to this term?

We previously reported on how the graphics on MW2 were ‘much better’, but we’re interested in hearing your final say on the matter. Are the below-par graphics really a big deal to you or not?

The graphics for black ops are large, bulky and really don’t look that legitimate as opposed to MW3 which is compact and tries to make you feel like you’re in a battlefield with cars and such that all aren’t 10 feet bigger than you.

Battlield is the best . But when I play a call of duty game I choose black ops . I don’t care for graphics. Graphics doesn’t make a game. With bf3 I think the graphics are almost TO good . I enjoy the graphics. Battle field 2 graphics are perfect super realistic but yet very fake I like BO best cod game

Real let down, I would say that the graphics should not be a big concern. But your paying 60$ for a "high quality" game. I would expect that the game would look well and play decent.

cod black ops might not have the best graphics, but look at it like this, new perk combos , weapon combos, and well atleast its better than plaing MW2 for another year right?

The Graphics are a game breaker because the only good thing about the COD franchise is the graphcs. COD gameplay sucks.

I would just like to be able to play the bloody game on a pc…is that too much to ask??..All I get is 'Fatal Error' !!!! great stuff especially as the game isn't cheap to buy…cant take it back because Tryarch or Steam won't send me an email to say there is a problem….what a load of crap i'm stuck with now!!!!!

your all giving bad points about black ops why not think about the good points zombies theater mode there isn't an annoying harrier in the air all the time because you actually earn your kill streaks not one of your others do it for you dead ops the maps seem more active like the missile on launch and activating the doors on radiation the emblem creator nice relaxing wager matches A good campaign because of the zip lines and more interactivity with teh ac 130 commands think of the positives not just the negatives And for the Graphics I don't… Read more »

Nasty looking game. Looks like I'm playing it ona Wii. In a game like Call of Duty; Immersion is very very important but with something that looks like something from the Duke Nukem days I can easily say that this game is a huge letdown in terms of graphics. Horribly bland textures, no bump mapping, not even decent lighting. All and all it reminds me of those old FPS's being played on some piece of crap dell where you have to turn down all of the settings to low. I think they just threw this game together as quickly as… Read more »

The campaign isn’t much fun because it’s too heavily instructed, yet a lot of the graphics I thought were great, particularly the snowy areas. Then I played the online multiplayer and it was as though I was playing on new map additions to COD4 with the chunky, cartoonish graphics, but the online gameplay does have much more depth to it. Instead of going halves either way on both the campaign and the multiplayer I’d rather they’d released the game later and done the job properly. However, having said that I much prefer black ops to mw2 despite the better graphics… Read more »

WTF?
WTF?

It maybe just me but I like games that more then 3 colors and a story that at least made sense(bar that it was highly unrealistic) black ops wins. They fixed so much stuff with black ops(still problems though) but the multiplayer is better, there’s more color, there’s not some fucking asshole screaming RAMEREZ! SEE THAT SATELLITE OUTSIDE EARTHS ORBIT? TAKE THIS THROWING KNIFE AND TAKE IT DOWN! or anyother stupid bullshit. Why does people like MW2? I got every achievement for it and had a positive kd……and it still sucked.

Treyarch sold out for the cash. They made an amazing game..cod 5 then saw how much mw2 made so copied and pasted it and cashed in. Dickheads.

Black Ops has to be the biggest letdown of the decade. Absolutely horrible. Did they all smoke themselves into a time machine going in reverse? Treyarch, you guys are going to be out of a job soon. I saw an ad in the paper for telemarketing from home.. if you give me your email addresses, I'll send you an application.. The game is on rails with no options to make your own decisions. The graphics.. can you say more polygons, The storyline, seriously are you going to jump us back to the first world war too? What a bunch of… Read more »

I have a Gainward GTX 460 with 2 GB VRAM and i7 860 3.2 with 8 gb ram
**** this game, it lags to much . From 80 down to 7 fps and always jumping like that.

I bought it today 2010 – 12 – 03 and still no patch to fix lag.
Really bad…
Is it because its treyarch now or what?

shit…. all week i've been looking forward to christmas, to get black ops, and now i read this… i 'm really diappointed, myself i saw my friiend play this on his ps3, and the textures looked like ps2-era. i know gameplay is more important, but BO didn't live up to it's hype. and whats all this about it being cartoony??? screw this, i dont know if im even gonna buy this anymore, i think im just gonna get MW2 instead.

This game is just crap, it really does look like a cartoon… What’s the point of all the extras when the game is s**t, maps r s**t too and small, no good sniping map and a lot of unused space in some maps. The maps look like they where hand painted… Looks like a game from 5 years ago. mw1 had better graphics I think… I’m not hating on the game that’s just the truth and I don’t know why people keep defending this when it’s clearly worse then the one before it.

Hi Ive just got Black ops well were do I start about the graphics im not botherd but its nothing like MW2 the thing that reall gets me going mad is the fell of the game when you aim and shoot some one omg it is pathetic i lost my receipt so i have to keep the game lol well no way i gave it to my next door nabour 🙂

sad

To sum this game up,
Gameplay: about the same as MW2
Graphics: worse than MW2.
Also the whole purchase your guns thing is just crap, i liked getting kills to unlock perks and guns, now you just buy them its shit. Treyarch just got sucked into the shit of Halo Reach with the whole buy your armor BS
The maps are also complete shit. If you don't have a nice place to camp you're dead as enemies spawn right behind you. Spawning in front of RC cars is also fun.

Not just graphics.. Multiplayer (which is what we all bought it for really) is absolutely slow unresponsive and laggy – connection drops just about every other game and for some reason game seems to respond to other movements (and my friends too as I tested on theirs to check) – i will look at a killcam where I got killed wondering why i got the stick after emptying a mag and for some reason no shot hit him? btw, as i am writing this Black ops is AGAIN stuck (5th time in an hour), but this time (for the nth… Read more »

Outdated graphics definitely detract, but let's say something positive: The russian guy with sweat/water all over his face looked cutting-edge. It was really just the washed-out map textures that didn't match at the edges that got to me…

I wish I had bought an Xbox 360 and Halo. This game blows next to MW2. All that waiting and anticipation for something that feels less than its predicessor. So dissapointed.

Well the difference between MW2 graphics and BO's graphics is night and day. I play on a Geforce 9800 GTX graphics card and run everything on high( I back off of ultra to ensure no lag) with a 32inch HD TV as my screen. In MW2 I could see a person clear as day from all the way across the map no problem, but for BO sometimes it takes me being right in front of the person before my eyes even realize there is something there. It is not however a big enough deal breaker for me to regret buying… Read more »

PC game locks up repelling down a mountain one quarter of the way through. I have to quit through the task manager. Back to the store . There should be legal action against companies that release hyped up buggy crap like Black Ops. 60 bucks wasted.

Bad company 2 and black ops both have different graphics the only difference is that Bo looks faker and cartoonish oh yeah i took the black ops game back a day after i bought it Bc2 Vietnam is going to murder black ops

the graphics are worse because the engine is a lot more demanding and requires a lot more intense hardware to run it, and that's where your problem lies. no doubt you're all on about the console versions graphics and their hardware is so outdates it's unreal. i play it on PC at max settings because it's capable of doing so at a smooth rate, and i can assure you, the graphics are FAR superior to that of MW2. the textures are so much sharper and the game generally looks a hell of a lot better.

i love what treyarch has done with the game. at least they listen to the wants and needs of the community. we asked for less hackers and boosters, and they said "ok, we'll change tactical insertions" and anyone caught hacking or boosting is punished. Infinity ward never really gave a damn about its customers. MW2 was booster and hacker infested and the spawning was HORRIBLE. sure the graphics in B.O mays be a bit outdated but i'd much rather play a game thats free of all the bull**** in MW2. And as for the "slow, laggy multiplayer". almost all mmo's… Read more »

No those people whos saying that Black ops has less better graphics than Mw2 doesnt know what graphics are the graphics in Black Ops is maybe 10% better than Mw2 but i think the PC Preformance you need to play this game compared to Mw2 is a big game breaker

I don’t if its just me, but in Single player i got randon CPU usage increase and in Combat Training on Multi if i play a game over 5 minutes i get a “lagg spike” which increases my ping from 50ish to 400ish… Why does this do this?? it works fine if all my games are under 5 minutes… On another note: Black ops has worse graphics than MW2 but requires a higher graphics card??? why? wat the hell??

MW2 experience beats the shit out of BO. Dunno what was the idea with that weapons, they feel like made of plastic, and shotguns are OMG !!! you're getting killed by submachineguns with suppressor while spraying that stupid Olympia in vain. In close quarter combat shotguns should rule, not be obliterated by all other weapons. IW understood that, Treyarch didn't. GFX is shit compared with MW2, details are non-existent, there is also a general feeling of lag, too many RC-XD which are almost impossible to shoot down…I mean, c'mon in MW2 you can at least go behind sentry-guns which are… Read more »

Just played the opening level…after it crashed and crashed and crashed. This is completely unacceptable in today's competitive market. I am so frustrated with the obvious laziness of Treyarch who thought they could ride off the back of the far superior MW2 and just take everyones money. On finishing the opening level it crashed and will be brought back tomorrow, that's after the 5 or so crashes just to get it started. The graphics, sound and atmosphere are just shocking from what I and I think fans of the franchise would have expected. I would love to see where this… Read more »

I wouldn't say graphics are terrible but they're not the very best. Modern Warfare 2 had better graphics (not that much better) compared to Black Ops but I would have to say Black Ops has some great gameplay. I would still still recommend the game though. I personally like it. Better killstreaks, (except no nuke) weapons,and the new call of duty currency. So I wouldn't say the graphics nor the sound is a "game breaker".

Black Ops has terrible graphic on my full hd lcd tv even using HDMI, if i watch it from 1 meter away I can hardly see the distant enemies in the jungle, so it is advised to sit further from your tv, but the 'nice' part of the graphic is not noticable from bigger distance, so its fucked up, any1 get me ? Why make this sub-720p, you cant really enjoy it on your tv. 🙁 was so hyped

I have a pretty top end gaming laptop. MW2 ran perfectly on multiplayer with all the settings set to maximum. Black ops gets frame skips on lower resolutions with game settings set to minimum. The worst 60$ spent in my life.

I'm very disappointed with that game, unfortunately i bought the PC version and already registered it on steam. ): I do not like that it has no coop, i do not like that there is a only one Zombies map (also Steams really bad servers for it). I was expecting at least a 32 player DM or what would have been the best would have been a 64 player DM like CODWAW PC. And last but certainly not least, the graphics. WHY DIDN'T THEY USE DIRECT X 11! At least direct x 10 would have satisfied. I don't give a… Read more »

what i really dont understand is how they could hav created such a perfect campaign, with top notch graphics and gameplay, and then… give up when it came to multiplayer. anyone who has played the campaign knows that its graphics surpass even MW2, and it is action packed and simply fun. giant let down when it came to the "flat" graphics and boring gameplay in multiplayer.

Graphics are a deal breaker!! Its 2010. Is it too much to ask for a fun game that plays great AND looks great. And for all those PC gamers that’s fine but we want it to look great on console also. Absolutely a deal breaker especially when we all know the damn company hAs the damn money to make them better!! It’s not like were talking bout some measly Lil company… This is treyArch and COD is a huge lucrative franchise. So disappointed in the graphics and not in love with the multiplayer maps either.

Poppa

Agree for sure that the graphics are shit looks almost like a counter-strike game, very dissapointed hope they wil make it better and add some real maps not like Nuketown :S ,
And there are not allot of options extra only zombie mode ( from cod 5 not very a diffrence) , Wager match ( witch is an awesome game mode for online multyplayer and that you can play splitscreen online-Awesome) .

So for those they still not played , it's just a dissapointment! whack!
until they do something about it.

But there's more than that … I just can't have fun playing this game.

And the gameplay … makes me feel it's the first time i play an FPS.

As it was said before, hard to play 2 games straight without massive lags or crashes.

With all this and no positive points on this game … i'm going back to MW2… no hesitation.

I need to shut people up… BO- Worst graphics mean a lack of realism. Meaning I feel like I'm shooting little cartoon characters. Not only that though… All explosions sound like Party poppers. Everybody says that MW2 had overpowered KS's… No they didn't. As the game went along, the Ks's were easier to obtain as people got better. I have seen already 32 hinds, 4 dogs. 57 cobras and 3 attack heli's… Never the less the inevitable RC car.. It takes more skill to play a broken game such As mw2. I am getting noob tubed in BO… seriously? THey… Read more »

This was a amateur release by Treyarch. To even release a game knowing the graphics were far worse then an older version of the same game title is unacceptable. A bunch of amateurs in that office apparently care more about the immediate money then future money because i will never by anything with that name attached to it. Better work on a new company but do yourselves a favor and trim A LOT of fat first.

Seriously…it sucks bigtime. Indeed the whole gameplay, graphics, story and so on takes you back to World at War. It would have been a good game….if released in 2005.
It's a major setback compared to MW2.

Not even mentioning the lag's and glitches, hoping Treyarch will fix.

Too bad… 🙁

Jason Pope

when I spend 2k+ on a Triple SLI machine yes.. I expect a AAA title to have great current gen graphics..

this current trend of throwing low res textures.. and console ports on current gen PCs is just retarded and needs to go back to the old days where PC games drove the PC parts market.

My first impression of the graphics were not positive, however as I played more I realized that they aren't "worse" than MW2, they are simply different. It is a different engine, and it is actually quite remarkable how much detail is in the textures and how smooth the gameplay really is. That said, the biggest differing factor is in the physics engine. And I will agree that MW2 looked a little more natural. However, I have to completely disagree that the nuketown map is cartoony. It is an excellent map in both the way it looks and plays (I find… Read more »

Overall the graphics are mediocre at best. Game play was a bit bland but it stuck to the Call of Duty game play. Story line could have been better though. Good concept just not all there.

Oi…I think being as huge of a disappointment this was overall graphicly/texture mapping/gameplay feel should really get this company to revamp it’s game production staff. For this game to have such a subpar standard as compared to games that have come out more than a year ago is saying alot for their abilities. I think the idea and creation of this game looked better on paper than the actual delivery. I already sold mine to the neighbor at a $10 loss just to get rid of it.

I was really looking forward to Black Ops and a step up from modern 2, but this game really looks like it is a step back. The graphics of the maps are ok, definitely not great. My biggest complaint is the weapons. They look way too cartoonish. I put Black Ops in and for a second thought I was playing Battlefield 2. Huge, HUGE dissapointment, hopefully the campaign is fun because online content is not worth buying the game for. Nice try Treyarch but I think you successfully ruined Call of Duty.

Checked out the one three Call of Duties back and graphics were better. Black Ops feels like a game from 2003. Screw extra story. The real game happens in multi play. I don't think they tried to improve the game, I think they cheaped out and went for quick bucks with new people who don't have the skills of the previous team.

I have few things I need to rant about this .Yes, the graphics are almost bad enough to make me want to return the game. But I dont know whats worse, (1) the sound, (2) the gameplay or (3)the graphics. Every gun sounds weaker than a cap gun. If you ever play again, just listen to your guns… so bad. I ve lined up head shots and completely missed (Ive watched replayes of this). And oh the horrible graphics! If you dont think this game looks bad you should have your eyes checked. Now I remember why I never owned… Read more »

I think the comments made about the cartoonish graphics aren’t completely out of order. If I wanted the game to look this bad on my tv, I’d have bought a wii instead.

No other game I’ve had has ever crashed the entire ps3 as… Read more »

Not played that many recent first person shooters – Guess i'm old school, half-life lan parties in the office etc. Played first persons all my life on Pc's. Have played Resistance 1,2 etc and some others on PS3 and they were pretty good. Just bought Black Ops and phoned Sainsbury's an hour later to confirm i can return the game. Wasn't so much the graphics as the fact it isn't barely a game. I haven't played the other COD's so not aware if this is normal format. So i have to run over there, i have to press the square… Read more »
